    There has been loads of discussion re mapping, I would do a search for "mapping" and have a read before making a final decision.

    I've no connection to this company apart from they did a job on my car and I was very pleased.
    Give Tony or Stewart a ring at Weldbank Garage Chorley.
    Two cracking blokes who will talk to you all about tuning. They used to own a motorhome and are well clued up.
    If you Google WG tuning you'll get there contact details.

    Before you use WOW do a thorough search, cowboys in my opinion cost me £2000.00 to rectify the damage they did to my van.
    You'll find a lot of bad reports on them, if you must remap find a company that build one specifically for your van. These off the shelf one fits all remaps are rubbish.

    Who has told you this and what exactly have they told you? There are a LOT of exaggerated results so it would be useful to know your reasons to be able to advise if they are realistic.

    first thing i would ask is do i NEED a remap is it to overcome some specific fault or are you just looking for something to spend some money on?

    What do you hope to achieve from the exercise, ? Is you vehicle underpowered, or returning very low mpg, How many miles has it covered? Do you tow with it. Quantum Tuning are a National Network, found on the Road Pro website, I have had mine remapped to improve MPG when towing. It is 5ton Motorhome. Their work is guaranteed and they will reverse the remap if you are not satisfied.
    There are lots of pro/con opinions around, but the decision is of course yours.

    I also used Quantum and they were excellent. No longer need to change down when cruising up hill in top or towing Smart car. Did mine over 3 years ago and no problems to date. As stated all work certified and they will reverse if you are not happy.

    I have to agree with all above. Remapping can cover a whole multitude of things, the important thing is what do you want to achieve from it? You can map an engine to deliver more power, more torque, better economy and even lower CO2 (although if you have that done you don't get a reduction in VED, no idea why not)
    You really need to know what you want, what benefit it will give you, and then you can work out whether it is worth it.
    For example my motorhome is running the standard engine map that Fiat put on it, and I am very happy with it. My car however has two selectable maps (button on dash), the standard one, and an uprated one. I put that on to give me more power, but actually the uprated map gives me a smoother delivery of power than the standard one, so I tend to drive with the uprated map selected, even when in town and no hope of going over 15 mph! :D

    And my WOW update is exactly the same, down to certification and reversing if unhappy.
